How To Make Instant Pot Boiled Peanuts

This instant pot boiled peanuts recipe will help you cook a Southern staple quickly, so you get to enjoy snacking on them more.

Prep: 5 mins
Release: 30 mins
Cook: 1 hr 20 mins
Total: 1 hr 55 mins


  • 1 lb raw peanuts , in the shell (not roasted)
  • cup coarse sea salt, (to make peanuts saltier, increase to ½ cup)
  • water


  1. Sort through the peanuts, removing any debris. Rinse peanuts well and place into the Instant Pot.
  2. Add salt to the insert pot.
  3. Add enough water to cover the peanuts and stir. Keep in mind that they will float, so you will need to place a weight on top of them to keep them submerged.
  4. Place the trivet that came with the Instant Pot on top of the peanuts, then place a small Pyrex bowl (any heatproof bowl/mug should work) on top of the trivet to keep it weighted down. Be sure to not overfill the Instant Pot.

  5. Lock the lid in place and close the vent. Using the manual setting, cook on high pressure for 80 minutes.
  6. When cooking is complete, turn the pressure cooker off of the Keep Warm setting and allow the pressure to completely release naturally.
